The Ottawa Senators have traded centre Matt Duchene to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Duchene is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. He is the second-leading scorer on the Senators with 58 points (27 goals, 21 assists).

The trade comes before the Senators are scheduled to host the Blue Jackets at the Canadian Tire Centre, Friday.

Senators General Manager Pierre Dorion says he tried to sign Duchene to a long-term contract before trading him.
